What song was your Love Song?

It is kinda funny but I guess my wife and I song was 'Truckin'
because when she was having a C section. She is on this table with all these bright lights glaring down and she is kind of bumming because the original plan was for Natural childbirth with the Midwife. All of sudden I start singing , "Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see" It was goofy but it got us through!

I am listening to some of the Mickey's Barn stuff. It is good for typing because there are no vocals to make me loose my train of thought.
You guys are lucky bastards even with non-head wives, I miss my old lady so badly and it seems like I am never going to find another Sugar Magnolia.
I think your old ladies might actually be hooked on the Dead
in much the same way a non-smoker can get the cigarette jones when living with a smoker. I don't know if you fella's could handle it but try going a week without playing any music when the MRs. is around I bet they would go through withdrawal too.

No Brother its cool, she had a malignant brain tumor about a year after my son was born. She has been gone almost four years now.
I wasn't trying to set you guys up I just figured you all had hippie chicks at home. Anyway, its not how much time we get, it is what we make of the time we have.
Anyway my son is seven now and where as my wife loved to hear me sing- my son is like "Daddy, can I put on the radio" He is cool about listening to shows! Oh, well I bought him an electric piano for Christmas
"Keep your lamps trim & burning"

Wow, I'm terribly sorry for your loss friend, I can't even imagine how I would handle a similar situation. It sounds like you've got a beautiful child and are devoted to him, kudos to you my friend. I know that at times I have found great solace in the discussions here and I hope you do the same. I would take these folks over a $200/hour psychiatrist anyday.
No, Dire, that doesn't mean you can start charging me now.

wow man - i dont even know what to say on that one - other than i am so sorry man - can't even imagin' how tough that is on you and your son. been a dark day here with a dear friend losing her mom this afternoon. shit, now my heart wants to go everywhere (with BryanE too).

"Anyway, its not how much time we get, it is what we make of the time we have." I haven't lost an extremely close loved one yet - i better pay damn close attention to those words considering what has been going around me lately. Peace my brother and a very happy New Year to you and your son. dire (thank you very much for sharing that)

Chris-
What a tragedy. I hope someone will enter your life to put an end to the loneliness that I'm sure you, and your son, feel at times.

We don't have "our song." Closest we ever came was when she dragged me on to the floor late one night at a club for a slow dance to Every Rose Has Its Thorn.

Yuck (to the song, not the slow dance)

Cool Bryan, yeah that is where we started with that thread. For a long time it was like Marley sang, "If you see me crying, my woman is gone" but time does help and right now I am in Ocean City NJ hoping to see an old friend about an old flame. "She could make happy any man alive".

It was written for Janis Joplin before she died. They had a love affair that didnt work out but remaind friends. He's one of the few men that she loved so the story goes. Its more of a lyric thing than a music thing for me. One of the few songs I actually relate fully on the lyrical side.

heres a link my friend:

http://www.countryjoe.com/jukebox.htm

Go down to Janis, click on it and listen away plus all their other stuff is there too. I am huge fan of them Ive seen Barry "the fish" Melton more times then I can count.

WOW MAN, I came to Philly area this weekend to try to rekindle with a very special lady that I loved dearly 15 years ago but it might be just like this song. This is a really cool site. I have heard some Country Joe but I had no clue they had so many tunes. Thanks!

dude your missing out on some great music. Be sure to listen to the Fish and Chip or Barry Melton Band stuff on here at archives. Plus I would more then happy to turn anyone on to the "other" San Fran bands.

Fish and Chip is Barry Melton, John Cipollina, Peter Albin (Big Brother) Spencer Dryden (Airplane) mostly but basically its the Dinosaurs w/o Hunter. So musically its better (no offense to Hunter fans but he wasnt the greatest guitarist). The band had other members that went in and out but John and Barry were the main guys obviously due to the name of the band. Its great stuff....so check it out my friend.

And unlike the Dead its downloadable because Barry lives by what he preaches.........

Well, that's a tough one. See, like many others here (based on responses from earlier posts) my wife is not a Head. She doesn't hate them, but will often ask how in hell I can spend so much time listening to/downloading/reading about/talking about them. I used to try and answer her, but eventually gave up. We do love many of the same bands, but I don't think the Dead will ever be one of them. Given all that, our "song" would have to be the dulcet tones of my wife yelling from the other room "Will you turn that down? If I hear that Scarlet/Fire one more time, I will be hurting someone!!"

We have a soft spot in our heart for "Are They Even Trying to Sing?" and "Does this Song Ever End?" around here.

same here!!!!! plus Andy Mckee!!! and Fagen and Metheny!!!. I can keep my sanity at times. Only certain Jerry and Dead - she can handle 75-77 (actually likes those years) so i have a certain dead reprieve - though only once in a while.

But if i throw in a version of The Eleven from '69..... it's time to play "duck and cover" from flying pans and dishes. (and let me tell you, she has good aim)

Sounds like my wife and your's have more than a little bit in common: they are both married to folks who in their opinion suffer from a rather serious case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I'd have to say I agree with them.

you speak of something which Thomas Aquinas would call an "Absolute Truth"

Punch to the bicep, huh? Sure beats a sharp stick in the eye.

What's that? No, honey, I'm not chatting with 13 year old girls (am I? Fess up now). Yes, its the hippies again. What? No, talking to them does not make me want to give up bathing.
